Lhasa Everest Base Camp Kailash Tour - 13 days

You will first arrive at Kathmandu Airport and stay at a Hotel. During the formalities for your visa and permit for Tibet Tour, we provide you with sightseeing in the Kathmandu Valley in which you will visit the Durbar Square, the Swoyambhunath, the Boudhanath and the Pashupatinath, all included in the World Heritage sites.

We then take a scenic flight to Lhasa with spectacular mountain views and Tibetan landscape (we can, however, take a drive too). We spend three nights in Lhasa, a Buddhist Capital, visiting the famous Potala Palace, the Jokhang, great monasteries and walk through the bustling Barkor market before taking drive towards Manasorvar. During Lhasa Everest Base Camp and Kailash Tour we drive through central Tibet via Yamdrok Tso (Turquoise Lake), to the historical towns of Gyantse and Shigatse and further by jeeps to the famous Rongbuk Monastery and hiking to North Everest Base Camp from where the views of the enthralling North Face of Mt. Everest can be enjoyed. We will then continue moving across the Tibetan Highlands, following the great Yarlung Tsangpo river valley and then to the sacred landscape of Lake Manasarovar and Mount Kailash.

The breathtaking views of the snow-capped peaks as well as the views of Tibetan countryside will make the journey an unforgettable one. You will be opportune to witness Buddhist prayer ceremonies, visit the homes of local Tibetans and observe religious customs to help understand the Tibetan religion and life.

You will offer some puja (worship) and also take a holy bath in the Manasarovar Lake. After the bath you will move round Lake by Jeep. The parikrama (moving round the lake) is about 115 km long and normally takes 4 to 5 hours. Even in between the parikrama you will take a holy bath near Trugu Gompa. You will most probably visit Chui Gompa for hot spring bath as well.

How to Book?

How to book holiday trip  Nepal and Tibet ?

Satori Adventures and Expedition aims at giving proper information to many travelers, trekkers and climbers who have some confusion regarding the booking process of the trip in Nepal.  Satori Adventures therefore desires to provide guideline for the first-time visitors or travelers so that they can comfortably start the process to book the selected package legally. Before starting the booking process we always advise our trekkers, travelers and climbers to intelligently check whether the company is genuine and whether they are fully safe to travel in the company’s guidance. We ask them to be acquainted with the company they want book their holiday trip with. Is the company genuine and authorized from Government of Nepal, Office of the Company Registrar, Department of Tourism and Civil Aviation, Nepal Rastra Bank ‒Central Bank of Nepal (authorized for foreign currency), Permanent Account Number (PAN), and the Department of Cottage & Small Industries).  Are they financially secured and environmentally conscious? We advise them to make sure about these formalities because there are some companies in Nepal that have been running business without abiding by the rules and regulation of the Government. Some companies were once registered but by now their licenses have already been expired and yet they have providing the services illegally.

On many occasions, Government of Nepal and Trekking Agency Association of Nepal have found that many foreigners’ tour operators, NGOs and INGOs have been involved in directly operating tours, trekking, and mountaineering holiday adventures without having government license and abiding by the Government rules. It has been also found that many individuals, freelance guides and porters have been arranging trips illegally by creating their own personal website. We have observed that many trekkers and climbers face a host of problems once they arrive in Kathmandu as they lack adequate information.  Many of them file complaints to Government of Nepal and Trekking Agency Association of Nepal for legal action such as the refund of the advanced payment. There is hardly any justice given to the cheated clients. Thus, so as to prevent all these probable problems we request our travelers to check the company before booking any trip to the Himalayas.

To conform and process your trip booking please follow these suggestions:

Please kindly submit Trip Booking Form when you confirm the trip with us. It will be easy for us to process for your trip conformation and prepare all legal processes and permit for the trip. If you have any query, always feel free to contact us at any time.  We always want to make sure our clients are well informed before conforming the trip. You are always advised to visit our website and related package for further information.
